Alexia and Read's engagement session with White Orchid Photography featured a whole lot of country charm – including cattle! The colors of Alexia's turquoise ring, Read's navy suit and the copper walls of the Fort Worth Stockyards made these photos so unique and shows us a glimpse into their passions in life and in their relationship. If any couple could pull off standing next to cattle for some romantic photos and make it look good, it's these two!
How did you meet?
We met when we both were attending Texas A&M University. (Whoop!)
What is your proposal story?
Before we started dating and all throughout our relationship, we consistently had a steak dinner date once a week. One day over this past summer, Read planned and prepared a whole steak dinner at home after both of us got off work, and popped the question while the two of us had dinner. It was a very sweet and intimate moment since it was over something we had loved and carried throughout our relationship.
